Exploring Spots on Route 66 Part 4

We left the Barstow Harvey House and drove to Victorville because we knew there was another museum there...and here it is!


We pulled into the parking lot, got out of the car, and this is the first thing we see...


Yes, a gravestone! For a dog! A very special dog, I gathered from the story, which follows.


After paying our respects, we headed into the museum.


Right as you walk in the door, you see this baby! These little trailers are the coolest thing ever!


Who wouldn't want to go camping with one of these?


After a few minutes, I realized that this museum was full of cool stuff so I made sure I inspected every inch of the place. (Don't worry, this won't turn into a 15 part series!)


I never had a TV this small but my sister said when she was a kid my folks had one.


I dig old stoves so I needed a photo of this one.


Now this brought a smile to my face. My mom actually had one of these and I loved, loved, putting clothes through the wringer! I know what you're thinking:  "But that is so unsafe for a mere babe!" LOL, ya well I was 5 at the time. Don't worry, my folks then bought a brand new Kenmore which lasted until 1985!



And then I looked up and saw this!!! Yes, we had one of these "space ball" tape decks, too.


My inner sign geek was tickled pick when I saw this....


...and then this!


I was worried that this might be the real restroom.


Look at this tiny cord board! Did I already tell you that I worked one of these? A GIANT one. See? You thought I was kidding when I said I was in high school when dinosaurs roamed the Earth...


To be continued...

So much fun stuff. Not sure what a lot of it has to do with Route 66, but I like it anyway! I want one of those trailers.
